  • It’s all about the knowledge! Boardriders Guide To…

    Check out our Knowledge Base – your handy online boardsports bible! We’re called Boardriders Guide for a reason, so this is our “Guide To…” surfboard, wetsuits, bodyboarding, rash vests.....everything! 

    We're more than just an awesome shop you know - with over 20 years in the industry, we know our stuff. Our staff are all into their sports and we've got our own skate and surf team too. 

    The sections in our knowledge base “Guide To…” are our answers to the questions we get asked most frequently about surfing, wetsuits, bodyboarding and more. Handy when you need an answer out of hours and a great reference guide too.

    Find out what terms like ‘batwing’ or ‘GBS’ mean when choosing a wetsuit. Find out what rash vests are actually for. Wondering what size bodyboard you need? Or maybe you’re wondering what the different types of surfboard tail are. All this and more ANSWERED!

    We’ll be updating with even more knowledge over the next few weeks, so watch this space for our guide to skateboarding and snowboarding!

  • Surfing & Surfboards - Your Questions Answered!

    Let's talk surfing! Whether you're starting out in the sport, confused about surfing jargon, or even just curious about how and what surfboards are made from, we've devised a little guide to get you genned up!

    Our surf team get calls and email daily with questions - from the different types of surfboards (what is a mini-mal? when should i use a longboard?) through to which type of tail or bottom design you should go for... So we've rounded up the most common questions, thrown in a bit more info, and bundled it into our Surfing Knowledge Base!

    The BoardridersGuide Surfing Knowledge Base is a great reference point if you're wondering about parts of a surfboard, types of surfboard, advantages, disadvantages....handy too if you're on the hunt for surfing info outside our office hours! We still like to hear from you though - so do give us a call (01273 420142) if there's anything you'd like to know, or if you're after advice etc.

    We'll be adding more info in the future, including 'How To' guides and PDF downloads - so if there's anything you think would be particularly handy, drop us an email (info@boardriders.co.uk) and we'll get on the case.
